To visit
LA COSTA DEL SOL
Malaga's beautiful beaches, like the famous Marbella, and all Costa del Sol in general, have made this region a well known destination for visitors from all the world. Few places offer such a perfect combination of beautiful landscape, highly interesting monuments and modern structures of tourism like the beaches of Malaga.


En la Costa Occidental
This is the perhaps best known part of Costa del Sol. Since the 1960s have been developed several modern centers of tourism, which contrast the original white villages of this region.

Torremolinos, 12 kilometers from Malaga, is an example for that. In its center of town, Carihuela, formerly a fishermen's district, you'll find today modern hotels, boutiques, pubs and discotheques for every taste. During the summer months life is really pulsating here ...

Benalmadena, 29 kilometers from Malaga and comparatively small, shows that still today there are romantic fishing villages. The large nearby amusement park anyhow attracts many visitors.
Fuengirola has a wide and most beautiful beach to offer.

Puerto Banus is an exclusive seaside resort more like Marbella, with luxurious yachts, restaurants and shops.

San Pedro de Alcantara there are very interesting rests of Roman and early Christian epochs.

Estepona, 15 kilometers from San Pedro, is another small fishing village that conserves the original character extraordinarily well in its center. Along the seaside there are modern hotels and tourism-installations.
As in all the region also here Romans and Moors have left their traces. Well worth a visit is also the church Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de los Remedios with its rococo facade.


Typical Villages in the Interior
Leaving the seaside, the first place to visit is the typical white village Mijas, a very popular destination of excursions from Malaga.
Moving on towards the mountains you arrive to Ojén, 65 kilometers from Malaga, a romantic place that is almost untouched by tourism. The Mirador de Juanar, a view-point, offers a fantastic panorama, and the orange woods of Valle de los Naranjos are truly picturesque.

At a distance of just 16 kilometers there is another almost unknown "pearl" of this region, Casares. This charming little village, located at the top of a pyramidal mountain, is surrounded by the mountain range Reales de Genalguacil, of blue volcanic rock. About half of the 4000 inhabitants are foreigners who came here to retire from this loud world. Through narrow streets inbetween picturesque white houses you arrive, at the top of the mountain, to the church with its high tower that was used formerly as a watch tower. From here one can overlook a large part of the old kingdom of Granada, until the rocks of Gibraltar.

The fantastic Ronda and the mountain ranges around without doubt need a chapter of their own.


Antequera y el Torcal
Moving from Malaga in northern direction, you arrive to Antequera, wellknown specially for its remains of Bronze Age.
Dolmen de Antequera is a tomb of an age of 4500 years.
Just a few kilometers from the town there are three more prehistorical tombs: Cueva del Romeral, Cueva de Viera, and Dolmen de Menga.
The town itself has to offer some interesting monuments of more recent times, like the Arabian Castle the huge town-gate Puerta del Arco de los Gigantes, built in 1585 to replace the old Moorish door. Formerly there was a colossal statue of Hercules at its top - that is where its name comes from.
In the Town's Museum you can see several interesting objects specially of prehistorical and Roman epochs. The Roman statue "Efebo de Bronce de Antequera", of 1st century, is remarkable.
Interesting religious buildings are the Colegiata de Santa Maria la Mayor, one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings of all Andalusia, and the churches Iglesia del Carmen and Iglesia de Belén.

Nearby you may visit the largest nature preserve of Andalusia, Laguna Fuente de Piedra, with several very rare kinds of birds.

An extremely interesting place where to go is the mountain range Torcal de Antequera. Erosion has given bizarre forms to the rocks, and it seems you are entering a dream-world of saurians, giant turtles and similar beings.

You may visit as well Alora and the thermal spa Carratraca.


The Eastern Coast
The first place to visit is Rincón de la Victoria, 13 km from Malaga, with its Cueva del Tesoro, a prehistorical grotto with a lake in its interior.

In Velez, located in a typical Mediterranean landscape with olive- and wine-cultures, you may visit the rests of an Arabian Fortress, the Palace of Marqueses de Ventel and the Mudejar style church Santa Maria la Mayor.

Nerja, 52 km from Malaga, is called "Balcón del Mediterraneo" ("Balcony of Mediterranean Sea"). Apart of the beautiful view its Cueva de Nerja, a 3000 years old cave with colossal stalactites, makes it worth a visit.
